How to search forums

Postby michtech » Sun May 19, 2019 7:42 am

It seems my abilities are getting rusty as time goes by. I have tried several times to search forums for different things and always get the same answer.

The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: xxxxx or xxxx xxx xxxx
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 14 characters excluding wildcards.

My tries are single words, combination of words.

What am I doing wrong?

"250 ftx hornady"

250 ftx hornady

Effective Site Searching

In Theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In Practice, there is.
